Today I managed to pick up one of the new 2009 Creator sets at my local toy shop. They also had 6745 and 6747 but I didn't fancy them
There was also the 8401 Minifigure Collection but I think I will wait until after Christmas to get that set.
Set number: 6743
Set name: Street Speeder
Release year: Should be 2009 but I'm not complaining
Piece count: 165
Price: 129.50 SEK, that is about $16 but the S@H price in the US is $12.99. Should be about €11.99.
Front of the box:
Back of the box:
The pieces and instruction manuals:
There isn't enough room to fit a minifig in the car but it should be possible with some modding. The car is almost minifig scale and I think it would look nice in a LEGO town.
The finished car:
The alternative models are not as good as the first one but still nice:
What's this? The Street Speeder seems to have time travelled back to the middle ages and has been found by a surprised knight!
But the clever knight finds a good use for the car:
I think this set is really good. It's cheap, has a great design and lots of useful parts. The colour scheme is nice and I always welcome sets with green parts - they are great for landscaping. The only drawback I can think of is that it would be nice with opening hood and roof but I guess that would be hard to incorporate in such a small vehicle.
So this is my ratings:
Overall design: 5/5 It's lovely! The green and white fits perfectly, I wish I had one of those in real life. I wonder if it's runs on bio fuel?
Playability: 3/5 Well, everybody can play with toy cars but you soon find out that it doesn't get more fun with time. Sure, the wheels are rolling and the doors are opening and closing but that's about it. But the car is really nice to just look at so having it as a display is also an option.
Pieces: 4/5 Good amount of pieces compared to the price I think, and a good way to stack up on green plates.
Price: 4/5 I think the price is fair. This is a set even kids can buy for their own money and I think they will.
Overall rating: 4/5 I really like this set but I'm not giving it a 5 because I save those for extraordinary sets (like Medieval Market )
Well, this was my first review. I hope you liked it!
